Brendan Canning – “Plugged In”

Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning will release his sophomore solo LP this fall and he’s titled it You’ve Gots 2 Chill. Yesterday, Tom expressed his hope that the song “R.I.P.” on the upcoming Quasi record is a Young Jeezy cover and, in a perfect world, I would espouse the wonder about Canning’s album perhaps being a tribute to rap group EPMD’s 1988 cut of the same name, but alas, he is “strictly business” here. The LP was all self-recorded, including two cuts on his via his voicemail, and the solitude is reflected in the sound. Check out the first single “Plugged In” below.

You Gots 2 Chill is out 10/1 via his imprint Draper Street on SQE.
